Overview

The Master of Science in Software Engineering degree at Maynooth University exposes graduates in Computer Science and related disciplines to the many facets of this complex area – the technical, the methodological, the organizational – so that successful participants will subsequently be able to lead major projects in software engineering in many industrial and commercial sectors.

Course Structure

Each module is delivered as a series of intensive lectures. Each module also has associated practical work. Topics include software testing, software process, object-orientated programming, internet solutions, etc.

Participants submit a dissertation based on a Software Engineering topic. They also complete a work placement in industry (normally with a salary) organised by the University Placement Office.

Course Duration: 2 years overall (1 year full-time taught modules. 6 months dissertation. 6 months work placement)

Career Options

Students are qualified for many jobs in the software industry. Many students gain full-time employment with the company who sponsor their work placement. Past graduates in the Masters programme have been accepted for membership of the IEI. Associate membership (AIEI) has been granted to those graduates with less than 2 years work experience, with Ordinary membership (MIEI) granted after a minimum of 2 full years work experience.

The cross disciplinary collaboratioin between the Kemmy Business School and the Faculty of Science & Engineering will leverage the expertise in both computing and entrepreneurship disciplines to ensure students obtrain a more enrished and holistic industry ready educational experience. Students will attend modules which are core to the topics of Software Engineering and Entrepreneurship, and will then be given options to take electives from both streams. A key emphasis in the delivery of the entrepreneurship and innovation modules is on action and experiential learning which includes a combination of interactive presentations, case studies, team work, individual assignments and entrepreneurship and small business-related projects which stimulate innovative thinking and more effectively develop participants' entrepreneurial potential. The focus for students taking the MSc in Software Engineering and Entrepreneurship will be on Software Engineering problems.

Innovative teaching techniques may be used such as Problem-Based Learning and Case Study development. Additionally, students will attend Research SEminars which will give insight into current Software Engineering Research.

Overview

Maynooth University (MU) in Ireland; the University of St. Andrews (UStA) in Scotland; and Université de Lorraine (UL) in France are offering a two-year Master Programme in Dependable Software Systems (DESEM).

Our objective is to provide students with the knowledge, skill and in-depth technical understanding of the key concepts required to design and build dependable software systems. This will be achieved by bringing together the theory and practice of software development and, in particular, through the transfer of knowledge from the classroom via research driven and commercially relevant projects.

The double-degree will be achieved over two years, through the allocation of 120 ECTS. Students will study in two of the three partner universities, achieving a diploma supplement from each university in which they accomplish 60 ECTS.

Courses are taught in English and are structured according to the ECTS. Students will be integrated into the culture of the country where they study through language and cultural courses provided by the Universities which they attend.

Course Structure

A student will achieve the European Double MSc in Dependable Software Systems, through studying at two European universities, providing them with the unique opportunity of specialising in two of the following subject areas:

· Rigorous Software Development at Maynooth University in Ireland

· Knowledge based Systems, Distributed Systems, or Software Systems at University of St. Andrews in Scotland

· Formal Reasoning at Université de Lorraine in France

To complete the degree a student must achieve 120 ECTS (60 ECTS at each university) over two years. These ECTS must include 40 ECTS from taught modules and 20 ECTS from project work in each year. Students also participate in one course-wide summer school module per year. The modules available to students are listed on http://www.mscdesem.ie

Career Options

Graduates are qualified to work in a wide range of jobs in the software industry. In particular, they are trained to apply logical reasoning and rigor in their software development activities, and on how to transfer knowledge between industry and academia. Graduates are ideally placed for development of safety critical software using software engineering practices which guarantee the dependability of industrial strength software.

Recent graduates have secured both industrial positions (in companies such as Google, SAP, Accenture, J.P. Morgan, Cigna and Active Mind Technology) and funded PhD programmes (in universities such as the University of St Andrews, TU Delft, Technical University of Munich and Bournemouth University)

The Higher Diploma in Science (Software Development) is a one-year programme for graduates with degrees in ANY subject giving them a practical introduction to software development including programming, software design and testing, team project work. It is designed to give students practical skills for use in the software industry as programmers, software designers and testers and to bring students to the standard for industrial accreditation as programmers.

Teaching and learning will be through lectures, practical lab sessions, and directed reading as required for the different subjects. Module delivery is not just a scheduled series of topics, but rather balanced to meet the needs and progression rates of the students. The course places a balance between learning the fundamentals of the subject, and applying them in practice.

Assessment is handled in a similar manner, with most modules having a combination of practical assessment during the delivery of the module, and an examination at the end of the semester. Typically module material is also made available through eLearning tools (primarily Moodle) allowing students to revise at their own pace. Additional tutorials are used, where required, to assist students who may have problems with particular aspects of a module.

The course is designed to give students practical skills for use in the software industry as programmers, software designers and testers and to bring students to the standard for industrial accreditation as programmers.

Overview

Typically, a MSc takes two years to complete (three years if taken part-time); at the end of the first year the student may have the option to transfer to the PhD register if they so wish subject to satisfactory progress.

The aim of the Structured MSc in Computer Science is to provide the student with an opportunity to carry out a significant body of research work with support from the teaching component of the programme. The programme will offer academic subjects to enhance their knowledge as well as transferable and generic skills that will add significantly to the MSc experience by broadening the skill base of the candidate.

The first step is to identify a potential supervisor. This involves deciding on a general research area that you are interested in and to contact a member of the department’s staff that is working in that area. The best approach is to look through the staff web pages and the list of Research Groups/Projects in the department.

Research postgraduates are typically (though not exclusively) funded during their research. Support varies depending on the source, but at best, funding can include payment of fees, a salary and travel expenses. Note that all funding programmes are highly competitive, and most are contingent on the applicant securing high marks in their primary degree.

Course Structure

Potential MSc students should decide on a general research area that they’re interested in, and then contact a member of the department’s staff that’s working in that area. The best approach is to look through the staff web pages and the list of Research Groups/Projects in the department – these can be found at https://www.maynoothuniversity.ie/computer-science/our-research

Research students can also register to work jointly with the Department of Computer Science and one of the following MU research institutes: National Centre for Geocomputation, An Foras Feasa, the Hamilton Institute and the Innovation Value Institute.
